I am getting an annoying error in a simple class, and I can't figure out where it is:
class AbsCore {
      bool result;
      bool Initialize (int renderer);
      bool InitOpenGL ();
      bool InitDX ();

bool AbsCore::Initialize (int renderer) {
     switch (renderer) {
            case 1:
                 result = InitOpenGL();
                 return true;
            case 2:
                 result = InitDX();
                 return true;

It gives me the following error in the line
bool AbsCore::Initialize (int renderer) {

The error is:
21 D:\code\AbsCore.cpp new types may not be defined in a return type
What am I doing wrong?
